Josh Parisian is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the heavyweight division of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He was born on August 1, 1990 in Huntington Woods, Michigan. He began his career as an amateur MMA fighter when he was only 19 and soon transitioned to professional competition in 2012.

Parisian’s career has been marked by ups and downs. After a dominant amateur run, he went pro and won his first three fights by submission. In 2013, however, he lost two bouts due to injury-related stoppage and also tested positive for marijuana usage; this led him to be suspended for nine months by the Michigan State Athletic Commission. Following this setback Parisian returned stronger than ever – he won five consecutive fights over the next two years with four of them ending via submission or knockout before ultimately taking part in UFC Fight Night 151: Overeem vs Harris on April 27th 2019 where he was defeated via unanimous decision against Juan Adams.

Parisian is renowned for utilizing unorthodox techniques inside the octagon such as throwing elbows while in clinch positions and using judo throws while engaging with opponents on their feet; these attributes have earned him praise from fellow fighters Dana White and Jon Jones who deem him to be something special within the sport due to his unique approach towards fighting strategy which often sees him land big shots unexpectedly during exchanges even when facing off against higher ranked opponents.

Outside of competing professionally Josh Parisian dedicates himself to numerous charitable causes including working with inner city youth groups across Detroit teaching them life skills alongside boxing techniques as well as raising awareness towards mental health issues amongst ex-inmates through motivational speaking engagements held all over America; it is these varied interests outside of combat sports that make Josh one of a kind within today’s world of MMA athletes – someone who can truly bring about positive change whilst excelling athletically at the same time!
